Education and Experience – Here are some thoughts: I have been reading about Einstein lately – and came to terms with one of his major expressions: Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.
Basically this expression provides so much insight to daily life, that it could not be much better said. Basically, it not so much what you have learned and tried before, that makes you successful – but the fact that using this previous experience to something, that in future will become valuable.
Why is the Candle Hot?? – Not because I said so, but because I burned my hand last time I touched it. It may be unnecessary to learn certain things the hard way, but as said in other words, you learn by your mistakes (and doing) and that is not necessarily something bad.
What did you learn the hard way?
